Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has told Chelsea they have “no chance” of signing Alex Sandro.
The Juventus boss said on Monday that Sandro would stay with the Serie A club this season, and emphatically reiterated his stance while in London.
“Alex Sandro is a Juventus player and he will stay one,” Allegri said after the game at Wembley.
On the chances of Sandro leaving for Stamford Bridge, the coach added: “No chance.”
Sandro joined Juve from Porto in August 2015, after Blues manager Antonio Conte had left the Italian club.
Conte is looking for competition for left wing-back Marcos Alonso, and Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta said in June that Sandro could leave this summer if he is no longer happy, but no deal could be agreed.
